Little-Known Cafe Has New Owners 

97 Café serves county employees and visitors

  • 97 Café keeps is simple but good with its offerings.

Walk into the Deschutes County building and you'll see 97 Café. It has an ephemeral vibe with two free standing counters, but the coffee shop, previously named 5J Café, has been there for six or seven years and has had several owners. Most recently 97 Café was purchased by Kristal Jaquith, a previous employee.

Jaquith has a background in the coffee shop business, having worked in a family-owned cafe in the Willamette Valley for 14 years. The 97 Café serves county employees and visitors to the building. When Jaquith took over she listened to what customers wanted, adding fresh salads, wraps, sandwiches and a daily soup to the menu. She's working on sourcing as locally as possible. I stopped in for a latte and an egg, cheese and bacon breakfast sandwich on an English muffin. Nothing fancy, but it sure was good.
